    I gotta say that I enjoy metal framed guns over polymer. I know there's some polymers that work, but the feel of steel just does it for me. In the pic is two of my duty guns, a Springfield GI that was worked by SACS, and a Ruger GP100. The P7 is new to me, through a trade and will be another duty gun. The STI is in 9mm and will be a duty gun soon.

    Who prefers all metal handguns over polymer?

    For carry I'll take polymer. But steel has it's own charms that polymer can't compare with, for sure.

    A good holster and belt combo will make the weight issue a "non-issue".

    Hope you have a safe career. To each their own, but I do like the GP100:wavey:

    I agree. Though there are some excellent polymer guns like the Beretta PX4. But I too prefer metal over plastic.

    I've been carrying a Beretta 92 for over a year now. Either IWB or OWB, weight and concealibility isn't an issue.

    Very nice guns.
    I like polymer but find I'm slowly reverting back to steel pistols. I'm sure in a year or so I'll only have one or two poly pistols left.

    There's a big difference between carrying a Glock 17 and a Ruger SuperRedhawk. There's not a lot of difference between carrying a Glock 17 and a Lightweight Commander. If there is, then you're doing something wrong.

    I just can't warm up to polymer pistols, don't own a single one.

    I used to have many more pistols, some polymer and some metal. But I've whittled my collection down to guns that I'm accurate with, fit a role, and that is durable. I'll eventually add an M&P or HK to the safe. I agree with holster statement. If it wasn't for holsters, I'd look like Barney Fife.
